Primary Instructor:

This course is a graduate level introduction to the field of social psychology. The course starts with a general introduction to the field. We consider how the field has conceptualized two of its primary concepts — person or self and context or situation. We also examine evolutionary underpinnings of human social behavior. We will then turn to several select topics including dissonance, social cognition and attitudes, stereotype and prejudice, culture and cognition, self-esteem and honor, and health and well-being. We will read both classic and contemporary, cutting-edge papers on each topic. Throughout the course a strong emphasis is given to the power of social situations that are comprised of multi-level realities including personal, interpersonal, societal, and cultural.
